“I have always had passion for movement, interest and awareness for the body. For years I have been practicing African dance regularly, trekking in addition to snowboarding, yoga...
Hi! I’m Paola, and I can teach you to be well.
I have worked for over 20 years, both as a physiotherapist and Grinberg Method® practitioner. I do both either group and individual sessions.
The desire to discover and the determination to not limit myself to that which I have become accustomed to have always pushed me to discover new possibilities for how to overcome my daily routines. This motivation has pushed me to become a professional who works individually with clients, and to become a trainer who leads groups and workshops on the body for personal growth.

I am a licensed practitioner and certified trainer of the Grinberg method®, a certified Stopping Movement® teacher, have been in business since 1999, when I opened the first professional studio for the Grinberg Method in Turin, in the Piemonte region of Italy. For several years I had been an assistant in the International professional courses of the Grinberg method, flanking various teachers and Avi Grinberg, the founder of this methodology, until I decided to become a teacher myself in 2008 and train future professionals, becoming the first Italian teacher of Grinberg method. At the moment I suspended my teaching activity to concentrate on developing my activities both in Italy and in Sweden.
I have long been active in the IAGMP International and Independent Association of the Grinberg Method Practitioners, becoming a member of the Board Committee for a few years.
Prior to this, I had worked as a physiotherapist in many hospitals and public clinics in Piemonte, Italy, and every year I have attended trainings in the Grinberg Method® with Avi Grinberg, attending international courses in Spain, Italy, Germany, and Switzerland. I have taken and completed the five levels of his Recovery course, the physical recovery training class for the Grinberg Method®.
I live in Turin, where I do most of my business, and in Stockholm, and combining the passion for travel and the opportunity to encounter people of different backgrounds, I regularly conduct courses and workshops around Italy and Europe - Paris, Cuneo, Rome - teaching in English, Italian, French.
From the beginning of 2016 to today I work with the Grinberg Method® in Stockholm, bringing this methodology where it was not yet known with individual sessions and group courses. I love being a pioneer!
I played piano since the age of five, music is part of my life, I'm always amazed how hands could be a vehicle of such power and beauty.
Hands that have also tried to do graffiti (legal, of course) but with few, very few results. I still have passion for art and street art.
I love nature, its colours and fragrances: I often spend my free time walking in the mountains, recharging me, I like to feel at one with it, I am stimulated by stacking up gradients and kilometres, being in silence.
I travel, I have friends in many different countries and this gives me a sense of freedom.
I have a flowery balcony that I take care of all year, taking care of the plants relaxes me, it's one of my forms of meditation.
I believe that the best is yet to come, just because I am alive and then because I have the desire to know what is unknown to me, to expand, to follow my curiosity.
